Is Red the only PC with a canon team?

Although, I guess every PC has a canon starter (Gold = Cyndaquil, Dawn = Piplup, etc), but I don't think anybody besides Red has a full canon team.

I think the pc of ruby and sapphire might. But I'm not sure.

Oh yeah, because Brendan and May become rivals if you don't choose them. So yeah, Brendan and May have canon teams, too.

Although, looking at the wiki, it's the same team (sans starter), and it looks really boring. <_<;

I think most people assume that gift and stationary Pokemon are considered canon as well.

So Ethan would have gyrados, sudowoodo, and shuckle, but again I'm not sure :p

I would consider those, yeah. Although, I never got Shuckle once in any game -- I didn't know it was a gift.

I was about to say Blue also has a canon team, but you wanted PC only.

Well there was the short anime about Ethan and there is a movie where Brendan and Lucas duel, so those pokemon can be considered canon. IIRC Ethan had a Typlosion.

And from the trailer of B2W2 we know Nate has an Emboar, Arcanine and Lucario.

Yeah, I kinda loved those B2W2 trailers just for that reason. Which is why I chose Rosa to play as in B2, since I prefer Snivy over Tepig.

Red is the only one with indisputable canon.

Most in-game teams vary based on the starter the player chose and whatnot, while Red has all 4 that gen 1 offered.

You can hypothetically "make" a canon team for most of the main characters using stationary and gifted Pokemon. Only Hilbert and Hilda seem to lack a good source as to their chosen starter (no the manga doesn't count because Red's canon team is different from his manga team).
